Birthday of Mrs. A. Pauahi Bishop, 1869.

[Found under: “NU HOU KULOKO: Oahu.”]

Birthday of the Alii Pauahi.—On the 20th of December, a party was held at Koholaloa, to celebrate the birthday of one of our young chiefs, that being the Honorable Mrs. A. Pauahi Bishop, recognizing her reaching thirty-eight years old. This past 19th was a Sunday and was her actual birthday, but because it fell on a Sunday, it was not observed. It was left until the following Monday. The lanai where the party was held was honored by the arrival of the Governess of Hawaii [Keelikolani], the Hon. Mrs. L. Kamakaeha, Mrs. L. Kaaniau [Kekaaniau], and the other dignitary women of this town. Later that night, the chiefess whose birthday it was was entertained at her home, relying on Pauli, Malo, Kapoli, and Wakeki, who sang some name songs for that alii. They were appreciated for their singing.
